Thank you my friends!

Of coures the figure details are the same of the source figure, as didn't improve them with a further resculpting... but sometimes the poses of some base figures allow excellent conversions, just with a little fantasy and some conversion work!
And here another two nice ones, inspired from a famous painting of Fort Gregg and some others: when the artillery is destroyed, and there are no more ammo...
rather than surrender, I'll throw bricks and stones to the enemy!
The interesting thing is that all these covertions came out from the resin castings of the same 5 figures, and therefore was very quick and cheap to do!
Of course independently from the level and quantity of resculpting involved, which in this case is minimal and visible from the different color of putty corrections... despite not so much for the engraving enhancement of some details, which I slightly cleared and improved, only comparable with the source figure next (sorry, I have no time to take the photos now
Of course these are conversions for a mass scenery with a lot of figures, the refinishing can be enhanced up to a single figure quality level, depending from what we want to get and how much resculpting is necessary... with more refinshing and resculpting we can get much better detailing and even make a perfectly detailed but completely different figure.
The last 4 figures in fact required just a little more resculpting, compared to the previous casualties and crowling poses, even just to make the bayonnets and the hands grabbining the bricks (simple resin squared bits)... but the outcome is much better, also thank to the dynamuc pose... after all in most cases, converting standing poses into other standing poses is much easier, than make them crawl or lay down as casualties, and of course look more dynamic!
However, apart the eventual resculpting, in these cases the figures features remains the same of the original, is just the pose that changed!
